Oman: New Visa Medical Certification Guidelines Issued

Oman Daily Observer, 7 January 2024: Oman’s Health Ministry has announced new visa medical certification guidelines have been issued.

The certifications are completed in Gulf Health Council centres abroad. From 7 January, expatriates will not have to visit Health Ministry medical fitness examination centres.

They will be able to approve their certificates on the Health Ministry’s electronic health portal or at Sanad offices instead. Patients who had medical fitness certificates issued before 7 January can continue to do so until 21 January.

The Royal Oman Police will not approve manually approved examinations after this date.
